Temporary Home

"I can imagine the great Heavenly choirs singing as our beloved Savior was born to this Earth. Heaven to me is a place where there is good music sung by Heavenly choirs singing praises to God and the lamb." March 31, 1979

I have been wanting for a long time to type out Grandpa Jones history/journals. A chance to get to know him, his thoughts. I decided one of the value projects for YW gave me the extra incentive. About a week and half ago I started. This quote seems appropriate to share, for this day, Grandpa is finally being WELCOMED by his Maker, Family, friends and His DEAR SWEETHEART! Grandma Jones who has been gone for quite some time due to battle with cancer. His sweet wife now has stuck by his side and has been a great companion! One to be for ever blessed! I call this bittersweet day for there are many soft tears of sadness and JOY!

Elder Nelson stated, "Life does not begin with birth, nor does it end with death. Prior to our birth, we dwelled as spirit children with our Father in Heaven. There we eagerly anticipated the possibility of coming to earth and obtaining a physical body. But we regarded the returning home as the best part of that long-awaited trip, just as we do now. Returning from earth to life in our heavenly home requires passage through—and not around—the doors of death. We were born to die, and we die to live".

How thankful we are for the Gospel and for those ancestors that leave a LEGACY!
We love you!
